Alumni To Attend Parley

Three former University students,
Senator Arthur Vandenberg, Dr.
Maximo Kalaw of the Philippine cab-
inet, and Dr. Yi-Fang Wu, Chinese
educator, will attend the San Fran-
cisco Conference opening April 25,
T. Hawley Tapping, general secre-
tary of Alumni Association, has point-
ed out.
Vandenberg, Republican Senator
from Michigan since 1928, received
an honorary Master's degree from
the University in 1925. He attended
the School of Law here in 1901-02,
when he was 16, and was affiliated
with Delta TJpsilon.
Interested in an international or-
ganization and active in foreign af-
fairs, Vandenberg said in a recent
speech to the Senate, "I want maxi-
mum American cooperation, consis-
tent with legitimate American self-
interest, with constitutional proces-
ses and with collateral events which
warrant it, to make the basic idea of
Dumbarton Oaks succeed. I want a
new dignity and a new authority for
international law. I think Ameri-
can self-interest requires it."
After the last World War, Vanden-
berg became involved in the world-
league controversy. As editor and
publisher of the Grand Rapids Her-
ald, he fought the League of Nations
covenant because it had no reserva-
tions to protect American interests
and traditions.
Vandenberg, whose wife is the for-
mer Hazel Whitaker, '06, is a student
of American history and an admirer
of Hamilton, whom he considers the
